On being forgiven

I am not one to believe in signs, but I have been having these weird dreams lately. Some of them I was letting go, some i was finally being let go, and most recently, I was given another chance. I believe that the most recent dream I had was a message from God telling me that he has forgiven me for anything I might have done in the past and that now, I have been given a chance to start over. It makes sense, no? I mean, here I am, living a life so different than the one I led only 10 months back. I will describe my dream below:

I was at some outdoor party or something, there was this colleague of mine- Reem- who I am no longer in touch with. I was asking her why she was at that party when she should be at her usual volleyball practices and she said she had quit the team. Suddenly, the sky turned pinkish/red and everyone started pointing up, smiling, rejoicing and saying "it is a sign, baby prophet is passing over us and this white line in the sky is his pathway, just like God said he would one day". I looked up and there was a white line, and there was a carriage like thing -I'm not sure- and horses, white horses, and stars and something glittery and it just looked so pretty. I started praising God, and then, although I knew it was a miracle, something was still trying to dissuade me. I no longer wanted to go to the party, I wanted to go home only to realize that I am stuck. I had no car and it was rush hour, if I were to take a cab it would take me min one hour to get home, that is when I woke up.

I think it is a sign because ever since then and I have had this serene, calm feeling that I haven't had for a long time now. It is like I started fresh, new... like I should no longer worry about the past and concentrate on the future.... like i have been reborn.

Weird, eh?

Something to keep in mind...

Life is short, so be sure to:

Break the rules,

Forgive quickly,

Kiss slowly,

Love truly,

Laugh uncontrollably,

Dance freely,

And never regret anything that made you smile.

Random quotes...

Is repetitive action virtuous action? If behaviour and conduct are merely repetitive processes then all human relationships actually cease.

and I am back...

Looks like I missed writing in this blog more than I thought I would. I've beenfighting the urge to come back for some time now, but looks like it got the best of me. So, to catch everyone real quick on my life progress:

- got a job, loved the job, disliked the boss, didn't get along with the boss and now, je suis unemployed once again.

- My bday was good. I spent it at the spa with my friend Nan, then we went to the beach and got drunk. Lastly, we went out for a late lunch with Rana. It was nice.

- umm... I'm 23 now??

That is it... oh, well, Montreal peeeps will be here soon, so YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!

I'm back...
